Broccoli

I hope that you must have heard of the vegetable Broccoli which is also known as Brassica Oleracea or Brassica italica. The latter two are the names which most of us are not familiar. This vegetable is full of nutritional values also Broccoli has amazing ability of therapeutic powers. Normally women eat this vegetable as men don't like it also Broccoli is used to fight against Breast Cancer for women. Broccoli is you can say cousin of Cauliflower, which is also full of mineral and vitamins deposit.
Let us digg some more on the Term Broccoli. The Broccoli vegetable is grown in Calabria, Italy, so italy is the home land of Broccoli. The word Broccoli comes from the Iltalian language "brachium" which stands for "branch or Arm". In the 8th century when there was the Roman Empire was on it's full rise, Broccoli was very famous vegetable in Roman Empire, later when immigrants from Italy came to America they also brought this gift to the America. It was in year of 1920's when the first plantation of Broccoli took place in California. Every individual who love's himself and takes care of his or her health, loves to eat Broccoli.

As I mentioned in the start that Broccoli is full of nutrition's, so let's see what these nutritions really are. If we take 100 grams of broccoli, it contains almost 25grams of calories. Other than this it contains

1. Iron
2. Magnesium
3. Zinc
4. Different vitamins including C, B1, B6, B2, E, K, A.
5. Also it contains Omega 3 fatty acids which are normally found in Fish oil.
6. Fiber.
7. Potassium

Due to these valuable minerals and vitamins. Broccoli must be micro waved or sprouts should be steamed, in this way the whole nutrient value will remain safe.

According to the research which was published in the "American Journal of Epidemiology" , there it was mentioned clearly that Broccoli helps to reduce the Coronary heart disease. Also if you have Liver problem like Hepatitis of any kind, Broccoli is very useful in this case as it helps detoxification by boosting it up. Making our immune system strong and also prevents from various infections. If you have any kind of problem in stomach whether it could be stomach pain, indigestion, burning of stomach, intestine problems, use Broccoli as it is useful in stomach problems.
Broccoli is also anti-cancer agent as it has been proved by the scientists at University of Johns Hopkins according to them Broccoli contains sulforaphane which found in abundant quantity in this vegetable and element helps fight cancer.

So every women should use Broccoli as it is anti-cancer agent and I say that men must also use this vegetable as it is full of nutrition.
